I've been on Ubuntu Server for many years and it seems… fine.

Not flawless, though.

One of the things it's really dumb about (maybe they fixed it a while ago?) is that it defaults to a relatively small boot partition, and if you don't reboot it for a while, it'll fetch multiple updates to the kernel until there is too little space on the boot partition to either 1) install any of the updates, or 2) reboot into a new version. If you're not careful, you render it unbootable (by the sheer act of… not having rebooted it).

The thing that screwed me over even harder is when a `sudo do-release-upgrade` decided to remove support for older OpenSSH ciphers, and… locked me out. Completely. Without warning. Wow, thanks folks.
